Axlerod Posted March 26, 2015 Share Posted March 26, 2015 projects/springweaponsviewhistorytalk SPRING WEAPONS BALANCE PROJECT With the upcoming Spring Patch release, we want to look at our full weapons catalog and do some changes. GOAL: Better define the roles of primary weapons, clarify their differences and improve consistency, through: Tweaking effective weapon ranges per weapon type •See example illustration of new damage model: Open Weapon Damage Model Suppression changes •No suppression at optimal/effective range, only in the falloff ranges and beyond •The intent is for suppression to be used as a tool to reposition yourself in combat Making headshots more meaningful •Bring back 2 hit kill headshots within optimal range (varies per weapon, not available on all weapons) Reducing the impact of a high rate of fire •Keep both high and low rate of fire viable choices respectively Clarifying bullet spread, impacts and recoil •Improved 1P Tracer effects, Sniper vapor trails, bullet impact effects & sounds Making shotgun behavior more consistent Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
